    .......love these lines...gave me a big smile...I could actually picture eggs on top of you....
    ~for as far as I could see...
    when I woke today, I noticed
    there were eggs on top of me. (Report) Reply

    Maybe Jack is moving
    in his mind,
    away from flesh,
    imprisonment,
    illness,
    cruelty,
    slaughter,
    towards vegetarianism (Report) Reply

    adding to Milti Symeonoglou's assessment,
    the eggs might symbolize that after such dreams one definitely has time enough to avert a future tragedy, if used wisely. (Report) Reply

    Were you visiting Arkansas when you dreamt of chickens, I wonder? Being the 'chicken capitol' (thanks to Tyson) I often dream of chickens and see eggs first thing in the morning too. Thanks for sharing your charming wit, it makes me smile. (Report) Reply

    Some poems do have a hidden meaning. But don't think this one does. I think it was meant to make people smile. Poems like these are never really accepted as masterpieces because they aren't depressing. (Report) Reply

    I could be wrong but i think it means that whoever is dreaming sees a ton of problems in every part of his house (figurative-the world) but when he wakes up he sees the eggs (the starting signs of the problems to come/Or it could be that he sees the aftermath of the world's problems and has a small waiting period in between two large catastrophes.)

    For those of us chicken-hearted, it sounds like more of a nightmare than a dream! (Report) Reply

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
